Updated: Aug 5
July 26, 2021 - NEW YORK - Seldor Capital, a venture capital firm based in New York City, today announced its investment in Fusematic Corporation, a product research and development company that manufactures and markets the most advanced portable friction welding systems available today and capable of providing automatic high strength bonding of materials on Earth’s surface, underwater, or in outer space. Fusematic has leveraged Seldor Capital’s connections in the space industry, as their portable friction welding technology is ideal in the space context.
“As investors in the space technology industry, we recognized the incredible potential of Fusematic’s fusion process to revolutionize space exploration by enabling repairs to occur safely in outer space. In addition to its space applications, the fusion process can also be used to reduce pollution emissions on Earth, therefore making this an ideal investment for Seldor Capital,” said Sidney N. Nakahodo, Founder and General Partner of Seldor Capital.
Outside of the space industry, Fusematic has garnered attention from customers, manufacturers, and investors in the energy, industrial, manufacturing, military, and maritime sectors. The applicability of their technology is far ranging - from the depths of the ocean - to outer space. Fusematic’s technology can be used to repair in-service assets in hazardous and explosive environments as their welding technique is much safer than current welding methodologies which require high temperatures for long durations of time.
“Seldor will play an integral part in helping us apply our technology to terrestrial, orbiting, lunar, and other-planetary infrastructure projects due to their robust and seasoned team of industry experts,” said Taylor Miller, Director of Commercial Space Ventures at Fusematic Corporation.
